, legislative aid to supervisor mark farrell. >> welcome. >> again, i'm a legislative aid to supervisor farrell. i'll be speaking on behalf of him today. the legislation that is before you today, it's clean-up legislation to supervisor farrell's payroll expense tax exclusion that was before this commission earlier this year. the original intent of the original legislation was for small businesses to take advantage of this from 2012 to 2015. and it was actually drafted before the gross receipts ballot initiative that's on the ballot cycle, that language had been finalized, which included, if that had passed it, our legislation would not go into effect. but we realize now with the legislation, with the gross receipts file initiative, small businesses won't be able to have their payroll expense tax rate reduced until 2014. so, to stick with the original intent of our legislation for 2012 to 2015, this actually prevents the termination of the event -- of the gross receipts tax passing. the original legislation and this legislation has the support of five of supervisor farrell's colleagues. campos,
